Beschrijving onderneming:

This startup is the world’s first unbiased and digital study counsellor. They use the power of data to provide the best possible fit between student and university, ensuring universities receive their ideal candidates and students go to their dream university.

This startup is going live with their data-driven matchmaking solution in February 2021, they advise 1,500+ students monthly from 35 different countries at a 40% monthly student growth rate, sold their MVP to 14 launching university (faculty) customers in the Netherlands, and renewed 100% of their launching faculty customers.

The expansion plan for this startup is to first expand their business to more countries in Europe, after that they are eager to expand to the US, Canada and Australia.

The service is completely free for students, focusing on universities as their customers. By paying an annual subscription to the startup’s matchmaking platform, universities have unlimited access to the students that are matched to them, where the startup will additionally verify the student’s admissibility and budget fit with the relevant program. This ensures universities receive quality, admissible candidates with a high chance of enrollment.

At the moment the startup has one uniform subscription, which they sell at a 50% discounted pilot price. Next year, all current and new subscriptions will be sold at 2x the current price.
